My dear sister Araceli Penaloza was the one who died in this fatal crash on I-70 near Silt Colorado.
I was in shock and scared when I heard the horrible news. I started to cry and as I screamed I said "No!!! It can't be true!!! Why my Jehovah God??? Why did she have to go??? Each day that passes by my heart just sinks deep into my soul and tears fall down from my eyes. It keeps me weighed down emotionally and physically with no where to go. I'm lost and alone without her because I can't call her or even give her hug and kisses like there is no tomorrow. My life will never be the same my sorrow within makes me empty and hollow. Every time I think of my youngest sister not being around me anymore fills me up with so much sadness that I can't let her know how I love and miss her so much.

In Loving Memory Of My Dear Youngest Sister
Araceli Penaloza.
How can you mend a broken heart?
How can you stop the pain from pouring down?
How can I let her know that I love and miss her so?
How come she had to go?:(

It was a beautiful day today. The sun was shining down from heaven and it filled the earth with so much warmth. I could hear the birds chirping and the dog barking at the mail man, the sound of cars driving by just like any other day. But the lonelyness and sadness filled my heart with so much pain. From not having my sister kept me indoors and not from enjoying this beautiful day. The emotional pain just weighed me down just thinking of my youngest sister in her resting place. :(

In Loving Memory Of Sister Araceli Penaloza. ;(
In behalf of my mother, she is the one that is taking it the hardest out of all of us in the family. It has been the first only horrible death in the family. My mom cries day and night for the loss of her youngest daughter. My mom had five girls and two boys. My sister Araceli was the baby of the girls. Its been very difficult for my mother to except her death. My mother will never be the same. A loss of a hild is the worst that a parent can go through in life. I constantly pray for her to have the courage and strenghth to go on with her life. Even though its not easy to go on without the loss of her daughter.

In Loving Memory Of My Sister Araceli Penaloza :(
I feel lost and only without my younger sister and I miss her so much. Its been difficult for me to live without her. When I get a phone call from my mom crying and talking about my sister's loving memories, it breaks my heart even more and it makes me feel so helpless and so sad :(. I get so emotional that tears run down from my eyes ;( I want to hold my mom in her time of grief but I can't because she's far away. But soon i will be visiting my mom so that i can accompany her so she wont feel so lonely and so distressed. Even though I could never take my sister's place or bring her back to life again. All I can do is comfort my dear mom and give her moral support to at least ease some of her pain. I feel I have to be strong for my mom's sake. Even though I'm hurting so much inside because of my sister tragic death.:(

Earlier today, I was told that my sister's funeral recording was finished.We had a DVD made for our only two brothers to see, since they were unable to make it because unfortunately of certain circumstances :(. That way, at least they will be able to see our sister's last viewing l. I need to make time to see it and be expecting some more sadness and pain all over again. I want to be strong about it but its not easy. Day after day I try to move on but its just too hard. I still feel the loneliness inside :( and the depression keeps me downhearted all the time. Carrying the load of pain and sadness in my heart just keeps me from enjoying life. :( Inside my soul is empty. I miss my sister so much :(

I was able to see the DVD. I saw it first at my twin's sister's house along with our father. I almost cried but I stopped myself when I caught myself breathing hard almost hyperventilating and tear drops just fell from my eyes. I felt the need to stop myself from crying because I wanted to be strong and not let my emotions out. I feel like if I let go of my emotions I will lose mind and go crazy. That is how much it hurts to have lost my sister in death. Later on the same day I saw the DVD along with some friends but it wasn't the same.I held on to the pain again. Maybe I need to see it by myself but I'm afraid to go insane. Oh!! How I miss my youngest sister!! I feel so lost without her. I'm sad and blue because I miss talking to her on the phone. I miss her cheery smile that was contagious even over the phone. I would be having a bad day but when she would call I would hear her voice with that friendly lovely smile that took my troubles away. If only she didn't die. I would still hear her beautiful smile til this day.
